There are many well-known scuba diving destinations around the world where divers can discover the beauty of marine life, or explore the mysteries of an old shipwreck. Most people are able to learn how to scuba dive in just a few days, and it’s a sport that doesn’t have many restrictions. Children as young as eight years old can learn to dive, and the only restrictions for older people are determined by their general health.

While there are professional scuba divers, the majority of do it recreationally, with the sole purpose of having some fun. There are different types of certification that are required, such as Open Water certification that certifies a diver to swim in depths of up to 130 feet. People dive in just about any place where there is water, but the most popular places for recreational divers include tropical coral reefs.

Caroline McCaul – Community Service Work

People who perform volunteer work in their communities are doing more than providing support where it is needed. They are demonstrating a commitment to helping others, and forging the kinds of connections that bring people together in ways that strengthen the places where they live, and the nation as a whole.
